Whether you’re a first-time angler, a veteran, or you want to get your children hooked – Redemption Charters is the place for you. Based out of Olcott, NY, you’ll head out to Lake Ontario for some pulse-racing fishing, tailored to your desires.

A retired firefighter and paramedic, Captain Anthony Ellis now spends his days teaching children how to fish and running excursions onto the lake. He’s been passionate about fishing since he was 5 years old and has passed on his love for fishing to his son, now working with him as the first mate. He hopes to be as successful with each and every customer.

Head out aboard a 29’ Aquasport fishing boat. Light and spacious, she’s ideal for getting you and up to 6 others out to the fishing grounds. Powered by a twin 350 HP engines, you’ll whizz off, wasting no fishing time at all. The downriggers and outriggers will be set up, so you’ll troll behind you, using dead bait to lure the bite of your target fish.

Famed for its Salmon fishing, it’s only natural that Capt. Anthony would target King Salmon on this Great Lake. Tough-fighting and delicious in taste, they’ll keep you entertained throughout your time aboard, and will give you a well-earned reward at the end of the day. Sit back and wait for the reels to screech before you spring into action and head into battle with these beasts.

You’ll also have the chance to try your hand at bottom fishing. Hit the shallower spots and you may reel in some tasty Trout or Steelhead. Not quite as thrilling as the Salmon, these beauties will also do anything to get off the end of your line, so you’d better be prepared for a serious workout.

At the end of the trip, the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home to enjoy right away. All you need to do is bring an adequate cooler to take it home, and you’re good to go. Bring some drinks and snacks aboard and make the most of your day with Redemption Charters. Come and see the great fishing on offer in Lake Ontario!

I've been fishing Lake Ontario for 32 years, when my father got me hooked after catching my first 34.5 lb King Salmon at the age of 10. I am a retired firefighter and paramedic and am now spending my time taking kids and adults sportfishing for, in my opinion, the hardest, meanest, freshwater fighting fish: the King Salmon.
